Larceny Leyton is a wild child - tough, smart, willful and proud. Like so many others, she wears her attitude like armour. 'Trust' isn't a word in Larceny's dictionary. It means opening up and taking the risk that you'll be hurt. Truth and dare. Nobody gets close enough to earn her trust. Larceny makes sure of that. Yet deep down, she's afraid of the voices that bring with them a wild consuming rage, a killing rage that drove her to the streets in the first place. She's afraid of being betrayed by the only person she's been able to trust - herself.
